? >> harris: a lot of energy spent on all this going back and forth. in fact, leading republicans suggesting a great deal of time has been wasted on politics. >> that is precisely right. they note that the house republicans tried to address the issues this summer and voted to extend all of the bush tax cuts and voted on an alternative to the automatic spending cuts that are due to kick in in the new you year and today the top senate republican said why wasn't this addressed months ago? >> we wanted an agreement. but we had no takers. the phone never rang. and so now here we are five days from the new year and we might finally start talking. >> so clearly a lot of blame game back and forth between republican and democrats but perhaps most importantly a white house meeting tomorrow with all of the key players face to face with the president. harris? >> they are talking. now, if we could just get them to talk to each other. the president and senate already returned and now we know house lawmakers due you to come back on sunday. >> there was a quarterback between the house gop leadership and ran

of renewable energy. these things are some of the changes in environmental law relative to emissions -- they are all part of that effort. we have got to do more. we have to build on that. but it is certainly a commitment. one thing we recognize is that it does not have to be a competition between our economy and our health, because renewable energy and clean energy have economic benefits that are pronounced, and people understand that. so we highlighted the issues we felt needed to be highlighted for voters who are going to make the decision in the election, but the president's agenda is reflected in his work, and i expect he will continue to work hard on this issue is. >> let's take these last questions as we wrap this up. >> thanks for coming back to the university of chicago. i have a quick follow up. yourding super pac's -- just now reclaim your concerns about unlimited money in campaign financing. on the other hand, we saw earlier today had democrats were already oiling up their machines for 2014 and 2016. what are the prospects for repealing citizens united or comprehensive cam
education and research and development, investing in clean energy and technology, investing in infrastructure and dealing with the deficits were more -- in a more balanced way. it was about what our obligations are to each other. it was about big things. those are very, very big things. i will say that, for all of the critique about whether our campaign was about big things or not, the preoccupations of people who write about that -- and i used to do that for a living -- i don't try to separate myself -- many of them are my best friends -- there is an awful lot of horse race coverage of this presidential race. there is such a preoccupation with who will win and who will lose and so little real interest in what the implications are. >> we were talking about pulling. >> public polling is so voluminous now. any to kids with an abacus can do a poll of the corner grocery store and some national news are in position will cover it as if it is news. and maybe the billion tommy pulled him out today. -- the billy and tommy poll came out today. it can be done sound yet they produce res
away from energy and industrials. >> talking of counting down. 15 minutes to go before the closing bell. the dow is down by 17 point but, you know, we're not really moving much at all. >> have you heard of euclid? that's what weather forecasters have named this monster storm hitting the east coast right now. our friends at the weather channel will show you the latest storm track coming up. >> and plus, how will euclid impact wall street? find out what the traders are daying next, first in business worldwide. >>> it is cold and it is ugly and it is snowing outside right now, and it is pretty much that way for most of the northeast thanks to this winter storm that's dumping snow on much of the east coast. the weather channel's danielle banks has more. >> hi there. maybe you were dealing with family drama and today we're dealing with weather drama so no holiday would be complete without some drama and still lot of that going on for locations with tornado watches through 5:00. the storms have definitely made significant progress since yesterday. so we're backing things up for you about 24 h
issue from the panama canal treaties to the energy legislation where byrd worked tirelessly on it to get it done without a filibuster. he had the sense that the senate leader should have a special relationship with the president and that is the way the system was supposed to work. of course, the most important in for the senate leader is to make the senate work. byrd knew the senate rules better than any person that ever lived. he lived in dealing with the notion of the fear of a paralyzed senate. he wanted to think that the rules worked, but he knew that in fact jim allen of alabama had cracked the code. he had figured out how to have this filibuster so the senate could be tied up in paralyzed. robert byrd like to think you have to be an expert to do this, but it turned out you do not need to be an expert at all. a couple of senators did not know the rules and they tied the senate up. byrd struggled with the notion of how to keep the unique character of the senate without having a paralyzed? in that regard, he championed rules change. he got some done in 1979. he knew that the senate ru
dealing with energy? and by the way, let's remember, second terms, domestically, they don't last four years. you've got about a year, maybe a little bit more, before that midterm election, when you can get something done through congress. so if this is -- and by the way, the bitterness that is setting in in the personal relationships between the president and mitch mcconnell, the president and speaker boehner, i think, make it that much worse. >> oh, man, peter alexander -- >> buzz kill. >> yeah. that's reality, as chuck todd just described it, it's also very depressing. so let me ask you, within the white house, you've got a group of people who have been with the president for four years, four exhausting years. those jobs are exhausting. is there going to be any turnover, "a," in the white house staff as we approach these new negotiations on the same old problem? and "b," the level of exhaustion, frustration and anger within the white house toward the congress, as chuck todd just alluded to? >> reporter: well, we certainly know that the cabinet is going to change with the announcemen
consequence. she's apparently to be head of a energy company that wants favors from epa or princeton. it's more important. we got legal proceedings to stop this massive economic dislocation. hopefully these candid discussions in the name of a false identity will shed light on that case. >> kelly: chris, we thank you for joining us and discussing this case that you're now pursuing. >> thank you. >> eric: coming up, the two things you'll need to know for new year's. great easy cocktails and a hangover cure you can find in the fridge. >> kelly: let's check in with gregg jarrett for what's coming up at the top of the hour. >> it's not my fridge. president obama set to meet today with house and senate leadership to make one more attempt to avoid going over the cliff. one prominent senator says hey, this meeting feels more like optics than anything real. are we skeptical? we'll have a fair and balanced debate. are dozens of law schools guilty of legal ethics violations? not mine. legal panel is here to weigh in on that in "america's newsroom" [ malennouncer ] it's tt time of year again. time f
: this follow-up -- if you are poor, you'd have to spend a lot of energy to get enough to beat. john, connecticut. good morning. caller: good morning. i was calling to mention low- quality food and the cost of health care, but you covered well. do you think it would be more beneficial if they start doing a local farming program where they could start growing vegetables? maybe have some land with tiles and chickens, and local people could work on the farming areas and return the food to the communities as opposed to being so reliant on high-salt diets, the foods we would coin as having a long shelf life, leaving it on the shelf for six months without going bad? has the government been able to look into those programs, considering the finances involved in the program as a whole? host: thank you. a related topic -- the availability of this fresh produce is a big distraction for many. guest: there are some programs that speak directly to the point, one our farms-to-school programs, directed to help know where food is coming from and getting fresher food into the schools. in addition, we
